JUST FOR FUN - TMI by Phil

First, the facts:

1. I'm a guy.

2. I am the father of two beautiful daughters.

There comes a time when those bouncing bundles of joy become young women and begin discussing bodily functions using words no man EVER wants to hear. Far too many times I would find myself sticking my fingers in my ears and singing, "TMI, TMI." (That's short for Too Much Information in case you were wondering.) Now don't get me wrong, I'm not useless. If you are in pain because you cut your finger off, I'm your guy! If the pain is from cramps, see your mother. (And ladies, PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE don't send us to the store for feminine hygiene products. That experience would probably make a good devotion, but I think I'd need counseling first.)

This morning our Bible study covered one of scripture's juicy bits - the story of David and Bathsheba. Yet once again, I fought the desire to sing my TMI song. You know the scene - David is taking an evening stroll when he sees a good looking woman taking a bath (this was obviously before the invention of shower curtains). Our story continues...

Then David sent messengers to get her. She came to him, and he slept with her. (Now she was purifying herself from her monthly uncleanness.) Then she went back home. - 2 Samuel 11:4

Did Samuel really have to include that parenthetical extra bit of info? Am I the only guy who cringed a little when reading it? I know you gals out there are saying, "Just grow up." Trust me, there are some things we men never outgrow. We prefer blissful ignorance; some things are better left unsaid. The same goes with new babies. Women want all the gory details like how long was the labor, how much it weighs, how long it is, if it’s a boy or girl, what the name is, etc. We guys like to leave it as "they had a kid." The rest is more of a need-to-know situation, and chances are we won't need to know.

There you have it. Ladies, consider this a public service announcement from your men.

Guys, I'm pulling for you.


Here to serve,
Phil and Pam


PS. OK, for you Bible scholars who are eager to correct me, I know the reason that little tidbit was included was to prove the baby was David’s, and Bathsheba wasn't already pregnant when they had their little tryst. But still... yuck.
